[ubuntu] Webcam issue

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi, I have an Asus N61J running Ubuntu 11.10. My webcam used to work perfectly with Cheese and Skype but today it stopped working. (I did not install drivers manually for it). My webcam is internal to the laptop. Cheese is just a black screen (not allowing me to click on almost anything in the menu) and Skype video devices option has USB 2.0 UVC 2M WebCam (/dev/video0) as the only option. Clicking the "Test" button does nothing in Skype. Running lsusb: rudys@rudys-N61Jq:~$ lsusb Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6 (Hardware)
